SymbioReactor - Sustainable production of bioactive metabolites from microbial symbionts of marine sponges and corals

Symbioreactor aims to explore secondary metabolites produced by microbiomes of marine sponges and corals to harvest novel natural products with potent bioactivities of promising use in medicine and biotechnology.

The research addresses the current realization that soft coral and sponge-associated bacteria produce many of the bioactive compounds found in their hosts. It moreover responds to urgent societal, economical and public health demands due to the increasing emergence of multi-resistant pathogen varieties in the clinical, agricultural and natural environment.

This project is funded by Fundo Azul, ref. FA_05_2017_032, Direção Geral de Política do Mar.
